A great relic of lost San Francisco history. Much of this strikingly beautiful architecture doesn't exist anymore. However my original official guide book (which I need to scan and upload) has floor plans for many of these buildings.

Also, my cousin owns one of the pavilions which was moved to Asilomar and can be seen here on Bing Maps

This is instantly the best of the Golden Gate films strictly for the reason that it seems to go beyond the same architecture we see in all the other films. I mean, this has a midway! Rides! Restaraunts! I was wondering earlier about whether this fair HAD signage at all, but luckily, this film shows more then the usual, and that makes this film 10 times more interesting, it even has aerial footage and some nighttime footage too! I wonder if this DOES qualify under amateur though, I mean, where did the airplane footage come from? Despite this film being banged up, this is really a treasure, and comes HIGHLY RECCOMENDED from me!
